Ceiling fans provide a feeling of freshness in summer, and some can reverse their direction to help circulate heat in the winter. Their varied designs blend into any type of decoration, classic to modern, and contribute to a pleasant and cool atmosphere. Ceiling fans are particularly useful when they function as a light source as well. These ceiling fans combine the advantages of ventilation with the those of a ceiling light. Our models differ according to their colour, shape, and how they are controlled. We offer a range of ceiling fans on Illumination.co.uk, most of them with a light, that we have selected for their excellent quality-to-price ratio.
In general ceiling fans have 3 to 5 blades. There is a correlation between the number of blades and how the appliance sounds: Generally, more blades mean it tends to make less noise. This occurs because the air mass that resists the blades is reduced where there are more of them. However, the fans with fewer blades can circulate more air. Pay attention to the form of the blades: the gently curved blades move more air mass than flat blades.
Also make sure to consider the size of the room and the ceiling height in your decision to purchase a ceiling fan. Therefore, we describe the optimal use for each of our models on their product page. Consider that if the room is large and open, having a larger diameter of the fan blades is important to have a significant effect.
Switches on the wall, pull cords, and remote controls are the main types of control for a ceiling fan. In general, for models with lights, you can activate the light and fan separately. The most high-end models also have continuously adjustable speeds. The most classic models offer two or three different speeds. For chandelier and fan combinations, its best to stick with LED bulbs. They fit well with fans and will help reduce your energy consumption.
In summer you can use the fan to create airflow and provide a fresh breeze without the disadvantages of air conditioning in terms of health and the environment. It prevents hot air from stagnating and creating that heavy atmosphere feeling in your home. Many of the models that we offer in our online shop include an option to rotate in the opposite direction. In doing so, they can blow the warmer air around the ceiling down into the rest of the room during the colder months of the year. In effect, less heat is required to maintain heat in a room. With this type of fan, you can save up to 30% of your heating costs, especially if you have a fireplace. Finally, if your home is relatively damp, the air stream created by the fan prevents the formation of mould, which can be very harmful for your health.
The appearance of a ceiling fan is not to be overlooked. It brings a special touch to your interior styles, that can be either modern or classic design. Pair it with wall lights or living room ceiling lights, for example, to increase the light sources and create unique interior lighting. In a room at bedtime this type of appliance fits perfectly.
